In our neck of the woods, fall has arrived.  The crisp cool air puts us in the mood for pumpkins, hot cocoa and Halloween!  Halloween is my favorite time of year, I love everything about it!

So, to get us in the Halloween spirit and create an adorable decoration, we created a Halloween Owl!

  • Halloween Owl: Fun Fall Craft for Kids:

Want to make your own Halloween Owl?

Here are the materials you need:

  • Owl cut-out (very easy to make!)

Start by cutting out a general owl outline (like a fat oval with pointy ears).

Glue on google eyes.  With the orange paper, cut a small beak by folding the paper in half and cutting a V shape.

Glue on the beak below the eyes.

Next, we added a flat cupcake liner to look like a round belly on the owl.

Then, we folded the cupcake liners in half with the printed side out.  These folded liners served as the wings.

We used several cupcake liners layered on top of each other to create a full set of wings.

Last, we added legs to our owl using the orange paper.

I love the Halloween spirit this little owl brings to our kitchen, he proudly displayed on the fridge!  Plus, it was an easy and fun activities for my daughter and I to do together.  Another wonderful fall memory made together!

  1. Great Halloween ideas. Halloween has not been a big occassion for us as the boys have been a bit young and until recently we did not have any children in the street. Now that we do, the boys are much more eager to participate, however I am going to get them to make all their own props.
